All 5 ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Movies Ranked, Worst to Best (Photos)

All 5 ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ Movies Ranked, Worst to Best (Photos)
The “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies may be coming at a slow pace these days, but they still are coming. How does the Javier Bardem-starring fifth flick stack up among the other entries in the mixed-bag franchise?

5. “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides

At some point, “from the Academy Award-winning director of ‘Chicago'” meant something. But Rob Marshall was woefully ill-suited to make a “Pirates of the Caribbean” movie, and that, combined with whoever’s terrible idea it was to have Jack Sparrow as the sole lead, spelled doom for this horrifically awful experience.

4. “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

Pretty much just an attempt to rehash the original movie, though it’s less satisfying in every way. Not horrible, and it does have the decency to be the shortest of the five movies. But its incoherence undoes most of the goodwill granted by the occasional clever dialogue.

MoviePass, Diversity and Just Good Films Led to Sizzling Summer Box Office

MoviePass, Diversity and Just Good Films Led to Sizzling Summer Box Office
Last summer season spawned one apocalyptic headline after another to deliver a singular message: the box office was the worst it had been in over a decade.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2” kicked off popcorn season in 2017 with a promising start. From there, things quickly took a turn for the worse. Aside from “Wonder Woman,” “Spider-Man Homecoming,” and “Dunkirk,” the movie industry suffered a string of flops across the next four months that resulted in a 14.6% drop from the previous season. Summer is synonymous with big-budget action flicks and superhero tentpoles. So why couldn’t last year deliver? Analysts pointed to unwarranted sequels from tired franchises for failing to fill theaters.

Fast forward to 2018, and a number of overperforming blockbusters have propelled the box office up 13.6%, according to comScore. “Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom,” “Mission: Impossible – Fallout,” and “Deadpool 2” are just a few titles that proved franchise fatigue doesn

Exclusive Interview – Mark “Rhino” Smith talks Idris Elba’s Yardie and the relationship between bodybuilding and acting

Red Stewart chats with Mark “Rhino” Smith…

Mark “Rhino” Smith is an English bodybuilder turned actor who has been working in the television and film industries since the late-90s. He is best known for his roles in Gladiators, Renford Rejects, and The Last Ship. His latest work was for the upcoming British crime drama movie Yardie, which was helmed by Idris Elba in his directorial debut.

Flickering Myth had the privilege to interview him, and I in turn had the honor to conduct it:

I’ve noticed a lot of bodybuilders over the decades have transitioned into the film industry, from Arnold Schwarzenegger to Lou Ferrigno to David Prowse. Is there something about the craft that makes acting a natural development in your career, or is it simply a case of having the right height/weight for the role, as I recall Liam Neeson saying in an interview with Peter Travers?

Gemma Ward: "Auguste The Label"

Sneak Peek new images of runway model/actress Gemma Ward ("Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides") supporting the Spring 2018 'Grace' campaign from the Australian brand "Auguste The Label", photographed by Trevor King:

"As a model you do play a certain role and you know as an actor you play another role," said Ward.

"It's hard if you start believing that you should be really that perfect fantasy ideal. You can delve into that fantasy world and play with it, but when you walk away, that's not you.

"As a child, I was a clown. I didn't hesitate to make a fool of myself and I would love to completely take on wacky characters. 

"To make my brothers and my sister laugh was the greatest joy to me in my life. I like people who can make fun of themselves a lot..."

‘The Purge’ Has Turned Into Our Best Genre Franchise, So Here’s Hoping ‘The First Purge’ Isn’t the Last

‘The Purge’ Has Turned Into Our Best Genre Franchise, So Here’s Hoping ‘The First Purge’ Isn’t the Last
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single movie in possession of a good premise must be in want of a sequel. This makes smart business sense — “A Nightmare on Elm Street,” “Saw,” and “Terminator” wouldn’t still exist otherwise — but anyone who’s seen “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” knows it almost always results in diminishing returns. Over the last five years, an unlikely exception has emerged: “The Purge,” which by hook or by crook has become better and more relevant with each new installment.

In hindsight, the core idea is so simple and compelling that it’s puzzling it took so long for someone to make a movie out of it. In a near-future America, all crime — including and especially murder — is legal for one night every year; all emergency services are suspended. The first film, written and directed by James DeMonaco, starred Ethan Hawke

The Most Shocking Revelations From Johnny Depp’s Rolling Stone Interview
“So are you here to hear the truth? It’s full of betrayal,” Johnny Depp tells journalist Stephen Rodrick at the onset of his Rolling Stone interview.

During the candid and harrowing conversation, which took almost 200 email exchanges to organize, 55-year-old Depp spills it all. The article, pitched by Depp’s closest confidante and lawyer of two years, Adam Waldman, was designed to discuss the “injustice being done to Depp’s reputation and bottom line” in light of legal battles with his former business managers. Here are some of the most shocking revelations relayed over a 72-hour period by the actor who tried “to pull his own tooth at a London restaurant while having dinner” with Penelope Cruz and Stella McCartney.

1. Depp is very open about his drinking and smoking proclivities

Upon entering Depp’s rented mansion in London’s Highgate neighborhood, Rodrick describes encountering “the stogie-size joint left by

Well, Terry Gilliam Has Lost The Rights To The Man Who Killed Don Quixote

Terry Gilliam's long-time passion project, The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, really must be a cursed film! The director has been trying to get this film made for decades! Things looked bright for him and the project when he actually completed production on it with Adam Driver and it ended up premiering at the Cannes Film Festival.

Well, things just took another crazy turn as Gilliam just lost the rights to his film! Screen Rant reports that the Paris Court of Appeal just ruled in favor of the film’s former producer, Paulo Brancho, who sued for rights to the project on the grounds that Gilliam made the film illegally. Wow! I didn't see that coming!

According to Branco and his production company Alfama, Gilliam and his team didn't hold the rights to make the film. Screen Daily quotes Branco as saying:

"The film belongs in its entirety to

Poster For Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote and Gilliam Expresses His Hate For Superhero Films

We have no idea when we will get to see Terry Gilliam's long-awaited The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, but today we have a new international Catalan poster to share with you for the film.

I also included some recent comments made by Gilliam expressing his hatred for superhero films, calling them bullshit. During a recent interview, the filmmaker said:

"I hate superheroes. It’s bullshitt. Come on, grow up! We’re not going to be teenagers for the rest of our lives.""It’s great to dream of great powers. Superheroes are all about power. That’s what I don’t like about superheroes. They’ve gotta beat the other powerful superheroes. Come on, a bit of peace, love, and understanding is what we need."

It's funny that he's saying this because this is coming from the guy who tried to direct Watchmen at one point in his career.

Solo Is the Most Expensive Star Wars Movie Ever Made

Solo Is the Most Expensive Star Wars Movie Ever Made
Following the bizarre production issues faced on set, Solo: A Star Wars Story is reported to have a budget over $250 million. Not only does this place Solo as the most expensive movie in the Star Wars franchise, but it also places it in the top 10 most expensive movies of all time.

As those who followed the progress of Solo: A Star Wars Story know, Lucasfilm fired the movie's original directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller four months into the movie's production due to them reportedly making Solo into more of a goofball comedy rather than the action movie they were hired to direct. In their place, Lucasfilm brought on legendary Hollywood director Ron Howard to helm the spin-off.

In order to "fix" the damage caused by Lord and Miller, Ron Howard and Lucasfilm had to reshoot almost the entirety of Solo: A Star Wars Story, which was rumored to have doubled the movie's budget.

‘Adrift’ Trailer: Shailene Woodley & Sam Claflin Are Lost At Sea

Later this year, two of our Ya-darlings join forces to battle the sea, sea-related injuries, and a sea of romantic emotions. The film, “Adrift,” is a romantic drama based on a true story, and it stars Shailene Woodley, of the “Divergent”-series fame, and Sam Claflin, of the “Hunger Games” franchise. It should be noted that Claflin is no stranger to aquatic-themed characters, cutting his teeth as Philip Swift in “Pirates Of The Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” and as the trident-wielding Finnick Odair in the aforementioned “Hunger Games” films.

Avengers: Infinity War went over budget, cost Marvel up to $450,000 per day during production

With Avengers: Infinity War setting box office records left, right and centre – including the biggest opening of all time, and the fastest movie to gross $1 billion – the accountants at Disney and Marvel Studios must be breathing a sigh of relief, as directors Joe and Anthony Russo have revealed that the superhero epic went over budget, and was costing Marvel up to $450,000 per day.

Appearing on Sway in the Morning, Joe revealed that Avengers: Infinity War and the as-yet-untitled Avengers 4 “shot for a year straight from January to January with about two weeks in-between”, stating that costs ending up being “350, 400, 450,000 dollars a day just to keep the production running” and that “we did go over budget.”

Speaking about where the money went, Anthony joked that “we gave most of it to Downey”, with Joe then explaining that: “It does break down that way where the cast does get a big percentage of it.

Watch The New Trailer For Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Man Who Killed Done Quixote’

A brand new trailer has arrived for The Man Who Killed Don Quixote, the upcoming film which is directed by Terry Gilliam. The film is currently scheduled for a release in France on May 19th.

“Don Quixote is a dreamer, an idealist and a romantic, determined not to accept the limitations of reality, marching on regardless of setbacks, as we have done,” said Gilliam previously to The Hollywood Reporter. “We’ve been at it so long that the idea of actually finishing shooting this ‘clandestine’ film, is pretty surreal. Any sensible person would have given up years ago but sometimes pig-headed dreamers win in the end, so thank you to all of the ill paid fantasists and believers who have joined to make this longstanding dream a reality!’’

The cast of the film includes: Adam Driver, Jonathan Pryce as Don Quixote, Stellan Skarsgård, Olga Kurylenko, Joana Ribeiro, Óscar Jaenada, Jordi Mollà,

Fantastic New Trailer For Terry Gilliam's The Man Who Killed Don Quixote Offers New Footage and Story Details

We've got a brand new trailer for you to watch for director Terry Gilliam's long-awaited film The Man Who Killed Don Quixote. It's been a long road for the filmmaker to get the movie made, but he did it! He actually completed his passion project and it looks like a fantastic film! The new trailer offers us a good amount of new footage and additional insight into the story. It looks like it's going to be a fun film filled with all of the wonderful things that I enjoy about the films Gilliam makes.

The movie stars Adam Driver (Star Wars: The Last Jedi) in the role of Toby and Jonathan Pryce (Pirates of the Caribbean) in the role of Don Quixote, and this is the synopsis:

The Man Who Killed Don Quixote tells the story of a deluded old man who is convinced he is Don Quixote, and who mistakes Toby,
